#1 Xavier Soccer is fighting for their 13th State Soccer Championship Title.
1993 was the beginning of a three-peat for Xavier.
Could 2023 be the completion of another three-peat for the Gators of Xavier?
Today, Xavier kept their hopes alive with a 3-2 victory over the #8 Desert Vista Thunder. Xavier was ahead 3-0 with 33 minutes left in the game following a beautiful goal by Senior Bella Leonard. pic.twitter.com/6FsmqpQxMw
But Desert Vista did not quit.
DV scored with 16 minutes left and then again with 41 seconds left. That is an impressive feat given the fact that Xavier allowed just three goals for the entire regular season.
Ten minutes into this quarterfinal match, Sophomore Michal Cangungun fed the ball with a nice pass to the front of the goal to Senior Larkin Thomason, who punched it in for a 1-0 Xavier lead. pic.twitter.com/iLWZ92AJ5O
12 minutes later, Thomason scored her 2nd goal of the contest on a penalty kick. pic.twitter.com/c6j97D1PLk
